A BOIL WATER NOTICE has been issued as of April 10, 2014 for users on the surface water system. This is effective immediately and remains in effect until further notice. This does not include residents in the Hall Road area who recieve well water, unless the well is affected by a power outage and well water supply is interupted, in which case this area would receive surface water and would be under this order.
The boil water notice is required due to increased turbidity in source water from Hydraulic Creek. For more information click on the link below to the Media News Release.
